Update: October 2020
We know many of our Ambassadors have been busy recently, possibly with activities that look very different from what they previously took part in. In case you aren't sure if what you've been doing can be recorded, we’ve put together a handy reminder to hopefully help, but please reach out if you have any questions.
STEM Learning are hosting a variety of online events this month on subjects including Black History month, apprenticeships, and careers advice sessions - learn more.
Science On the Sofa from Glasgow Science Festival continues into this month. There’s already plenty of content to get stuck into, with more still to come – head to the website to get involved!
Lastly, a reminder that would-be STEM Ambassadors in Scotland can complete both the induction and PVG Scheme application processes online now. The induction is now completed on Future Learn, and Volunteer Scotland are processing digital application forms to the PVG Scheme. Your Hub will provide details after registering but if you registered some time ago then ask your Hub for the updated information.

STEM Ambassador Spotlights
Update : July 2020
Over the last month we’ve been busy updating our site to help you learn even more about our STEM Ambassadors!
If you’re interesting in having STEM Ambassadors support your work with young people, whether in a school or non-school setting, then you can learn more about the kinds of individuals you can advertise to, the breadth of STEM specialties they represent, as well as some activity suggestions to get you started, by heading to learn about our STEM Ambassadors.
If you’re interested in becoming a STEM Ambassador you can read all about the motivations and experiences of others’ in the STEM Ambassador Stories section.
If you're looking to become a STEM Ambassador at this time, you can still register and complete the online training, but unfortunately we aren’t able to process PVG applications.
